Great place to hike or run. Trails vary from 1 mile to 5+. It is easy to add distance by winding through the "wilderness" trails, although just a warning they are not the most clearly marked. Nature center is fun for small children. The planetarium show is wonderful and enjoyable for adults as well.

Good fishing spot with the kids. Catch and release, but fun. Just watch it for the turtles.

This is a wonderful place to take your kids to learn about nature. There is a bee hive you can see through. Lots of nice trails to explore. There is a associated nature school neighboring.
